Art Goes Viral

At the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) we know that, like viruses, creativity is contagious. To help spread the fun, we have designed our very own colouring book! Illustrated and written by CVR scientists, we hope this book gives you a bit of welcome relief from the daily stresses of life, while inspiring you with interesting facts about viruses and the incredible research underway at our centre in Glasgow.
Created with the support of the Medical Research Council, we hope you enjoy learning about the tiny pathogens that never cease to amaze us.
To mark the MRC Festival of Medical Research (17 - 25th June), we are running a competition to allow 10 people to win a FREE hard copy of the book!
